The Eurobodalla Shire Council says three war memorials will be restored thanks to a NSW Government's Community War Memorials grant.

At Batemans Bay, the war memorial would see full replacement of lettering and correction of two misspelt entries: F. Brooke and L.H. Brooke would both have the trailing 'e' removed from their surnames. The gap where the obelisk joins the base would also be filled.

The Wagonga Street war memorial in Narooma would see memorial plaques resurfaced and some repointing of the sandstone column.

The council said lettering at the Tilba war memorial would be regilded and access would be easier with a new concrete path constructed from the service station driveway.

Work on the memorials would be finished before November Remembrance Day ceremonies and overseen by the council's heritage advisor.
